European quality pre-stretched double-braided polyester rope by Langman Ropes.  "Newport" is ideal as a halyard rope on sailing boats. Other uses include climbing and any applications requiring a high-quality polyester rope.

Available in a number of colours and diameters, Newport has very good UV resistance.

Newport is manufactured in Holland using the best high-tenacity polyester yarns.  The outer casing consists of 32 strands braided to encase an inner braided polyester core of 12 strands.  Unlike "Hamilton" & "Spunline", Newport is pre-stretched polyester rope with a very low elongation. Therefore this rope will stretch only 1.5% under a load of 20% of the breaking strain - perfect for halyards.

Newport braided polyester sailing rope is easily spliced and very flexible due to the number of strands in the braid. It will bend easily around blocks and sheaves.

Sold by the metre or on 200 metre spools.  Quantity discounts  are automatically applied to orders of 50m or more.
